Good, maybe Paul can continue to peel back Romney. The reality is if Paul doesn’t do it Romney or Obama will be in the WH till 2016 and that must not happen. Actually I doubt very much Romney can beat Obama but Paul can, IMO.

Too bad RuPaul is a crazy old anti-Semite.

I've see things really FU in my 65 years, but this Republican (GOP-E) primary is leading the pack of FUs right when the country is fixing to be lost.
There ain't no polite way to put it.

Nuff said.

Ron Paul and your supporters are dreamers and disenfranchising the entire process and Republicans. Paul has not Won anything, but his dedicated few have worked hard to secure delegates far beyond what the general population of likely voters supported.

Do Paul supporters actually think anybody will vote for Ron? Do Paul supporters actually think their antisocial stance's will play with the mainstream voters who do care about certain issues such as marriage, religion, etc.?

Ron Paul is like a hard core liberal when it comes to social issues, I know because I've been to the meetings. Paul's supporters sound like my liberal and democrat friends but has just one Conservation streak and that is simply fiscal responsibility.

Paul supporters are a distraction worse than the plague.

I’ve been to the meetings too, Libertarians are mostly liberal on social policy. But it is well defined and won’t pass Congress. I don’t think there is a big domestic risk with Paul, but losing Israel is unacceptable.

Paul doesn't have a snowball's chance in Hell. Every nutty, racist, and anti-Semitic pro-terrorist statement that he has made (or had published under his name) will be trumpeted non-stop in radio and TV ads 24/7. Obama would beat Paul in a landslide.

How can someone so right about domestic policy be so wrong about foreign? Yet he is.

"Obama would beat Paul in a landslide."

I think Paul is the only person on the earth that ZERO could beat.
Paul wears a tin foil HAT. . . .

Makes one wonder why those things would be such a huge negative for Paul because it is exactly what Obama has been doing and he is worshiped? Could the difference be the teleprompter?

Because the left and the rinos fund the libertarian nonsense to siphon votes from conservative candidates.Their complete idiocy of foreign policy prooves it.

You don’t even have to prove that, because it’s something everybody “knows”.

Good point, but the difference is in the way the public would be guided by the Obama campaign and the media (really the same thing) to think, for example, that the racist comments (by others) in Paul's newsletter prove that he is only one step away from putting on the white hood himself, and that Obama is really telling the truth when he claims that he never heard Jeremiah Wright say anything racist in his so-called church.

Paul’s minions have done their homework. They’re teaching the rest of us how to take the party back from the moderate-loving elites at the top.

So Paul gets enough delegates to keep Romney from getting enough. Neither one has enough to get the nod on the first ballot. It forces a brokered convention and Newt finally pulls it out! Works for me!

There is that ‘commanding’ and ‘inevitable’ executive experience working for Bishop Willard again. Really, about the only things he seems to be able to put down with finality is a ‘gentile’ fetus in Massachusetts.

What happened to Willard’s ‘proxies with the moxie’?

If we're going to be delusional enough to think that a brokered convention will select a candidate who got their ass handed to them in the primaries, I'm going to hope for Rick Perry!
